For the last month or so Portland Bay has been the home to this massive oil rig called "The Ocean Patriot"
They moored outside the bay when they first arrived and to see it out there it was awesome..
But then they moved it closer.. This thing is HUGE!
It's apparently bought something like $40 million to the district with repairs, crew and family accomodation, supplies, contractor employment etc.
If you are anywhere nearby and want to see something massive, make it quick- it's taking off soon I think.
